  • Silversmithing help?? Books? Tutorials..

    Been working with silver plated stuff for a while now, but feel very limited on what I can actually create.

    Would love to start working with some sterling silver.. any recommendations of good books/websites to start researching??

    Many thanks

    Tim Mccreight's. Complete Metalsmith is great for reference. Sometimes books can give you help but can be tricky to follow unless you have had some lessons from a real live person

      I think my favourite book at the moment for silversmithing and jewellery making advice is Jinks McGrath's Jewellery Making: A Complete Course For Beginners. This is such a nice book, very clear step by step photos show you exactly what to do and it has a very stylish, clear layout plus some really inspiring examples of jewellery and projects to follow. This has been a real bestseller this year, so I doubt you would be dissapointed with it. We also sell Tim McCreights Complete Metalsmith book, which is very good, but it is illustrated rather than with photographs and although the information in it is excellant, i think the Jinks McGrath book would probably be better if you are just starting out as you can really see what to do from the photographs and it is more inspirational, the Complete Metalsmith is great too, but more of a reference to keep on your workbench, Jink's book will definately inspire you to pick up your tools and make something amazing!!

      Here's a link to our other books, in case you want to have a look around... http://www.kernowcraft.com/products/books/
